We have all heard God being called “the light of the world”. But God is not a flame coming from a small candle in the middle of a room. Hebrews 12:29 says, For our God is a consuming fire. He is much more like a raging fire that is beyond our control. We cannot force God to comply with our will, we must allow ourselves to be consumed by His. Let us not put our confidence in the things that are destroyed by the fire, but instead let us build our life on Christ and His unshakable foundation.
